Which School Just Booked Stephen Colbert For Commencement?

If you’re hoping that the always inane and insane Stephen Colbert is coming to your school’s commencement ceremonies…you might be out of luck. Colbert has officially announced where he’ll be speaking this Spring.

Colbert will be returning to his alma mater, Northwestern University, according to the school paper North by Northwestern.

He graduated in 1986 from Northwestern but that hasn’t stopped him from waxing nostalgic about graduating from other schools he’s addressing. For example, he whipped out the following line at the Knox College address:

But the best reason for me to come to speak at Knox College is that I attended Knox College. This is part of my personal history that you will rarely see reported. Partly because the press doesn’t do the proper research. But mostly because it is not true! I just made it up, so this moment would be more poignant for all of us. How great would it be if I could actually come back here — if I was coming back to my alma mater to be honored like this.

Colbert also spoke at Princeton University graduation ceremonies. He’s also featured as one of the 5 funniest graduation speakers right here on Edudemic!
